Libertarian Party donates $50,000 to re-elect Indianapolis Councilman

The National Libertarian Party is backing with $50,000 a Libertarian incumbent
on the Indianapolis, Indiana City Council.

Free elections with real choices . . . what a radical concept

The United States is the only democratic nation on earth with only two political parties.  Every other nation has free multi-party elections.  Voters have many viable political parties to choose from to represent them in government. 

But in the United States the election laws are written by the two parties to do everything humanly possible to PREVENT free elections and limit any choices for the voters.  So it is refreshing to see an upcoming election where the voters will have a real choice on the ballot between an incumbent Libertarian Party city councilman and a Republican challenger. 
Libertarian Party of Indiana

The Libertarian Party national committee voted to donate $50,000 to the campaign of Ed Coleman, who is running for re-election to the Indianapolis city council in a partisan election on November 8, 2011. Coleman was last elected as a Republican in 2007, but shortly afterwards he switched to the Libertarian Party.

Coleman serves as the Libertarian Party Minority Leader on the Indianapolis City-County Council.

Councilman Coleman was elected to one of the four at-large seats in 2007, in 2011 he is running to represent the 25th district, in the southeast corner of the city.

Indianapolis has 25 city council districts plus its four at-large members.

The 25th district race will be between Coleman and a Republican. Democrats are not running anyone for that seat.
